Antique Early 19th Century Purse Reticule Finely Knitted Beadwork Circa 1815

This is a very pretty early 19th century example that comes with excellent provenance; purchased from the deceased estate collection of a well known English pre 1820 textile collector ( name given upon purchase). Please see a very, very similar example at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston ref no: 45.656

This small drawstring reticule is very, very finely knitted in stripes of warm autumnal shades - we see amber, russets, beige and chestnut browns. Teeny glass beads are incorporated into the knitting. This is expertly done to achieve the white uniform fleur de lys type patterning and the petalled base terminal. We adore the pretty beaded ribboned garland effect worked in green glass beads with alternating pale blue and red glass oval, each oval has a yellow glass beaded center....so Regency!! Having original end tassel, suede lining.

Size: 4 5/8" by 3.75" at its widest.

Condition. Missing its original drawstring - an easy fix with matching thin brown cord. Please note that if re-affixing a drawstring that some of the top knitted drawstring holding compartments are damaged. There is but one small area of missing beads ( a row of 12 green beads to the far right).

This is a super addition to your early purse collection offered in a rare colorway.
